The Dodgers did their damage on six hits and three free passes with Cody Bellinger connecting on a grand slam while Yasiel Puig smacked his 9th homer. The Dodgers hand the ball to Caleb Ferguson for Saturday’s outing at the NY Mets. Ferguson absorbed a 4-1 loss to San Francisco last time out with four runs plated (three earned) over five frames.
The New York Mets continued to struggle following Friday night’s defeat at the hands of the visiting LA Dodgers. New York starter Zack Wheeler was charged with four runs on five hits and three BB through seven innings.
The Mets offense totaled eight hits and a walk with Jose Bautista providing the firepower with a two run bomb that plated Michael Conforto.
Jacob deGrom has been named the starter for the NY Mets against the Dodgers Saturday. DeGrom will be gunning for consecutive wins after downing Colorado 12-2 with an earned run allowed over eight frames.
LA Dodgers are 10-3 in their last 13 road games and are 22-9 in their last 31 overall and are 22-9 in their last 31 games on grass. NY Mets are 2-7 in their last 9 Sat. games and are 7-19 in their last 26 home games and are 16-35 in their last 51 overall.
The Dodgers have dominated the Mets and that makes this a no bet for me because New York does not support deGrom….
